Hi, I'm Jermaine (I know it's not a traditionally Jewish name, I'm 1/2 Jewish and 1/2 Black), and I'm pretty new to the online dating scene, basically doing this to appease my mother. So let me tell you a little bit about myself, I was born in England, and grew up all over the US. I spent most of my youth in Oklahoma until I joined the family business, the Armed Forces. I spent several years in the Navy as a combat medic for a Marine Corps Infantry Unit. My military career brought about so many great opportunities and the chance to help people in many countries. Might I add, there is no better feeling than fast roping from the hell hole of a CH-53 onto the flight deck of an amphibious assault ship in the South China Sea. Sadly, my career was cut short by injuries suffered during combat operations in Iraq. My time as a military medic has turned me into a trauma junkie, so I'm currently enrolled at George Washington University, pursuing dual degrees in Nursing and Emergency Medical Services. I'm hoping to one day become a Nurse Practitioner or Physician’s Assistant specializing in Emergency Medicine. I'm a pretty fun-loving guy, and I love making people laugh. I also appreciate the opportunities I've been given to donate my time and skills to the community, from mentoring children to community outreach health screenings. I am looking for someone who has the same zest for life as I do. After a near life ending injury in combat, I learned life is short, so have fun while you can.
